[SOLVED] How to properly add a swap file?

I am using LM 18.3, which currently when installed does not automatically create a swap file (like in LM 19). What is the proper way to create a swap file (FYI *I do use bleachbit, with the clean memory option.)? Thanks in advance.

Re: Is dual booting a security issue?

As others have stated, encryption seems to be the best option sensitive data on your machine. 8) ... Sure. I'm not sure why you're telling me this.

Re: Is dual booting a security issue?

If I, for example dual boot LM 18.3 and LM 19, would this have any security issues? Please provide links, if you have any that state it is or is not a security issue. Thanks. :) As long as folder and file permissions remain as default, then no, you shouldn't have any security issues. Now, if someon...

Re: Is dual booting a security issue?

the trick IMHO is not keep anything sensitive on your machine: - backups is what they say, don't they. Those are two entirely different things, though. A backup means that you have a copy (or copies) of all important data... it doesn't mean that there is no sensitive data on your machine. As others...

Re: Is dual booting a security issue?

To the best of my knowledge any user of LM 18.3 and LM 19 can see/edit/delete any and all files/folders/programs on the entire computer, without needing a User or Root password. I would call that a security issue... But that is not a new thing, people like it that way. That's not entirely correct. ...

Re: Is dual booting a security issue?

can that encrypted folder be deleted by another user? if so, would it require a root password? I imagine so if they have the root password yes. Its easy enough to create and delete accounts ( including /home files ) if you have that. Use sudo passwd to set a different root pass, make it different f...

as someone who multi_boots just about everything in sight, and I've not yet seem anything that could be an security issue, - even with the Windows Operating System. the trick IMHO is not keep anything sensitive on your machine: - backups is what they say, don't they.

Encrypt local users accounts /home folders then no no real security issues when duel booting different versions of Linux. Issues start when you're also booting with Windows and sharing files between it and Linux. You can download a file with a Windows virus in Linux, while it won't effect it, you c...

Re: Is dual booting a security issue?

The only way I can see dual booting being a security issue is if one of the installed operating systems is Windows. As long as the installed operating systems are secure, which Linux generally is, I don't see why it would matter how many of them you have installed. Thank you, kindly. :) *Side note,...
